Monster Sinkhole Opens On East El Paso Street
I LOVED all the rain we got yesterday and last night. One East El Paso street though, just couldn't hang ...
A giant sinkhole, big enough to swallow a car, opened up in a section of east El Paso known for flooding on Tuesday afternoon. The sinkhole occurred at Sam Snead and Orville Moody Lane, about a block off of Lee Trevino. Police shut off the area to traffic after the sinkhole appeared about 3 p.m. following an afternoon of heavy rain in the region. City crews were working to fix the roadway, but there was no immediate word on how long that could take.
We had a record .83" thru midnight, the old daily record for yesterday's date was . 73" set in 1883. After midnight, (unofficially), we received another .46". For an unofficial 2 day total of 1.29". - CB
Chuck predicts the final, official total will be 1.5" - 2".
